Details of the upcoming Apple iPhone 8 have been finding their way to the mainstream media at an alarming rate.
Some reports have claimed that the iPhone 8 will be unveiled on September 6th and followed by the official release a week or so after. Even though this has not been confirmed by Apple in any capacity, it is now emerging that the company is almost ready to get things going.
Apparently, Cupertino might have accidentally confirmed the official design of the upcoming iPhone 8 via an email sent to some people courtesy of McDonald’s. The giant retailer sent out an email to its customers with details on how to redeem a 25% discount on their next orders and in the email, there’s an image that resembles what has been doing rounds in the rumor mills regarding the design of the iPhone 8.
From the image, the alleged Apple iPhone 8 has no bezels on the sides and the top, but the latter section still has a small area left out for housing the selfie shooter, earpiece and other sensors. The bottom end is not visible, which leaves the Touch ID issue the mystery it has been all this time.
It’s unusual for Apple to make such mistakes, but perhaps it’s not a mistake after all. Lately, we’ve seen many companies coming in with what many believe are controlled leaks. Perhaps, with the fast-approaching launch of the new Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and LG V30, Apple has decided to give fans a sneak preview of what the iPhone 8 will look like ahead of the official unveiling next month.
The phone is expected to launch alongside the iPhone 7S and 7S Plus, but sources close to the matter claim that only about 5 million units will be available for shipping this year, with most markets scheduled to get the phone in early 2018.
